We will see, because it is only a very small sample... but right now I consider McIlrath a better prospect.
No, it screams that his conditioning was an issue, as well as him adjusting to the NHL game. He's never played a full season with all the physicality. Stepan wore down at the end of the season, but you don't see anyone out there saying he won't make it cause he wasn't as good at the end of the season.

And those 42 games McIlrath played in the NHL last season were very impressive
